Watching Habs games - alone or with friends/in a group?

Out of curiosity, when watching our beloved Habs on TV, do you typically watch alone or do you catch games with a bunch of friends/family members?

I'm jealous of all you guys who live in Montreal and likely have tons of friends who are diehard Habs fans to watch games with. That's one of the crappy things about living in Southwestern Ontario (grew up near Montreal, left when I was 18) is that the majority of the people here are either Leafs or Wings fans.

My wife watches games with me, and over the years she's become a pretty big Habs fan, but I still sometimes wish there were more Habs fans down here! Nothing like watching games (especially playoffs) with a bunch of fellow diehards.

So, what about you guys? Watch with friends? Family members? Alone while on HF Boards?

When I live in Montreal I try to catch as many games as I can at my buddy's place. Beers and banter is had with a few of my childhood best friends, it's fun as hell. When I'm abroad it's a very sad melange: games which start at 2am, GDTs, bad contraband whiskey, e-banter, and it usually ends with me drunk and naked.

Yeah. Price maybe hasn't ever stolen a game but he's definitely stolen your heart.

Alone with you guys OR with friends at a bar/restaurant without you guys.

I actually prefer watching alone since I can analyze way better.

Watch it alone 95% of the time.

I watch most of the games with my dad, with the laptop close-by so that I can see what's being said by other fans (HFBoards). If not, I either watch the games at a bar with a bunch of friends or call some buddies so they come over to my place. I definitely prefer watching games with family or friends than alone.

I don't have many friends in my personal life. The one good friend that I do have is a Pens fan, so traditionally we hang out when it's the Pens vs. the Habs. Other than that, I'm always at home with Mrs. CS and our three kiddies. Not bad company, by any stretch.

With friends. Alone is fine. But with friends, you can joke around more. Talk about hockey. Drinks. And if things are going sour, well, misery loves company, or you have something else to talk/joke about.

Depends. Sometimes alone at home, sometimes alone at the café when trying to do homework, sometimes with my dad, sometimes with my uncle and grandfather and other times with my friends.

Used to have a few habs buddies when I was in my home province of NB. Now i'm in Toronto and am faced with the same problem as you. I'm trying to get my girlfriend in to it but it's pretty much a lost cause. She has no interest. So, I watch alone

Well, the GDT keeps me company! Watching with Habs fans would be my obvious first choice!

Used to usually be with my wife, but now that's she's pregnant she doesn't want bad mojo for the fetus by hearing me scream at the TV! haha!

Although it's gotten better recently, I pre-warned her last night that Chris Lee was reffing.
